One of the first cable shows to be very critical of the suspects release would be the Bill O'Reilly show, joined by Geraldo. Critical from the very beginning of Aruba, the investigation and certainly the suspects, it is not surprising that they would have much to say after Joran and the Kalpoes were released.
Bill O 'Reilly says, "the Hurricane blew away the Holloway story," and Geraldo agrees, stating this is exactly what Beth Twitty herself charges.
Geraldo says what is most shocking, that in light of all the evidence Beth has shared with him, what the Aruban authorities know, and still the suspects were released. These are Beth's documents which she will begin to quote on every show almost nightly. Geraldo shares the shocking truths, he believes with all his heart, that Joran had sex with Natalee repeatedly, while she was "going in and out of consciousness," and then the Kalpoes took over, gang raping her ending with Deepak burying Natalee in the sand.
We would hear about this so called confession of Joran over and over again, this was just the beginning on September 8, 2005.
Rivera also discussed the recently released Joran van der Sloot. He says van der Sloot was probably released because the Dutch government ordered the Aruban judge (unconfirmed).
